> *HOW IS THE COUNTING DONE?*
> We will have a small hand-picked team of counters, and divide them into

> *HOW MANY VOTES DOES A CANDIDATE NEED TO WIN?*
> The winner is the Candidate who receives the majority of the votes cast,

> *WHAT IF THERE IS ONLY ONE CANDIDATE FOR EACH POSITION?*
> In the event that the Candidates for each of the four Offices run
